Mrs. T. Phoury, 40, and her husband, Mr. Teav Tean, 43, have been married since 1990. They have no children. Phoury and her family are living on an island of the Mekong River about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. Phoury has been a silk weaver since she was 16 years old. It's a skill she learned from her mother. Her husband learned to weave silk from her in 1993 and stared weaving silk in the same year. Now, he is a good silk weaver.
Phoury is requesting her fifth loan from MAXIMA in the amount of $200. She will use this loan to purchase silk materials, sewing thread, and to pay for the preparation of her husband’s loom.
About MAXIMAMAXIMA Mikroheranhvatho is a Cambodian microfinance institution founded in 2000 to help low-income rural and urban people and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access financial services. Sustainable access to credit helps to create jobs and enables business owners improve their living conditions, educate their children, provide health care to their families, and more. It also enables the rural poor to remain at home with their families, rather than moving to city centers in search of employment.
